Moorhead, Minn. (WDAY TV) - A big Moorhead bridge project may appear to be done, but don't get caught up in what you see.

The 34th Street Bridge over I-94 stems from a study 10 years ago. The city was attempting to create less roadway and railroad crossings.

It's partially open now, but only because it's needed for a detour route. 30th Avenue is closed for construction on the railroad crossing and workers behind the bridge had no other way to get to work.

“Once that work is done then we'll open that back up to traffic and unfortunately we will close the bridge again temporarily while we are waiting for other portions of the project to be completed.”

The bridge and its exits to the interstate will be open mid to late January.
